1800s Medical Center Remains at the Top of the List with a Contemporary Makeover and New Addition
Cheyenne Regional Medical Center adds a clean, modernistic look to welcome patients.
Hatfield, PA – Nationally ranked by U.S. News Best Hospitals, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center in Cheyenne, WY was first introduced in 1867 as a frontier “tent” hospital constructed by the Union Pacific Railroad to treat workers who were injured while building the transcontinental railroad. As the years went by, their tent grew into a bigger and better building with now 2,000+ employees, 200+ volunteers, 170+ active/associate medical staff and 222 licensed beds prepped for patients. Cheyenne Regional offers a comprehensive line of healthcare services including cardiovascular, cancer, orthopedics, neurosciences, weight loss, women and children’s services, trauma, wound management & hyperbaric medicine, rehabilitation, home care, hospice, behavioral health, medical imaging and lab services.
As the hospital began to grow into the organization it is today, the need for a modern-day transformation as well as an extension fit for the increasing number of patients was long overdue. Running into complications finding the resources they needed for their exact time frame and budget restraints, Architect, Davis Partnership, and Installer, Roof Check, of Denver, CO reached out to Distributor, Riddell and Company, of Englewood, CO for product and installation recommendations.
Learning the peripheral cladding would be going over exterior insulation board, owner, Paul Riddell, proposed Laminators Inc. 1-Piece, Tight-Fit Moldings installed over hat channels as the most suitable installation system for the job. Davis Partnership and Roof Check teamed up with General Contractor, GE Johnson Construction Company, of Denver, CO who toured Riddell’s Denver facility to learn more about this specific installation system and how and why it would be the best plan of action.
Recognizing the 1-Piece, Tight-Fit Moldings installed over hat channels would be the most suitable installation system; the next big decision was agreeing on the exterior cladding that would give the hospital a fresh, clean appearance they all desired for the renovation and new additions. Laminators Inc. Omega-Lite® aluminum composite panels in subtle, yet sophisticated Almond color, custom-made specifically for this project, accomplished just that look. Roof Check installed 18,792 square feet of Omega-Lite to the existing Medical Center, the new freestanding comprehensive Cancer Center as well as the new bridge that connects both facilities.
The Pioneers who first founded what is now, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, in 1867 would be proud of what the facility has become today.
